To quickly get access to a Redis Enterprise database with a module, you can sign up for a free Redis Cloud database and enable the module that you want to try out.

You can also try out modules with Redis Enterprise Software (RS), RS in a Docker container, or any other platform that Redis Enterprise is offered on, but a free Redis Cloud database is easy, free, and without the hassle of managing infrastructure.

The modules that are currently available for Redis Cloud are:

Note -
Modules are currently available as a public preview in AWS region ap-south-1. They will be available in other providers and regions after the public preview period is finished.

The steps for getting up and running with a database that has a module enabled are:

  1. Create a new subscription.
  2. Create a new database with the module enabled.
  3. Connect to the database.

Step 1: Create a New Subscription

To create a new subscription:

  1. Go to Redis Cloud and follow the instructions for creating a free Redis Cloud account. After you create your account, click New Subscription.

    If you have a login for Redis Cloud:

    1. Log in to Redis Cloud.
    2. In the Redis Cloud menu, click Subscriptions.
    3. At the bottom of the page, click Add.
  2. Select your subscription configuration:

    1. For the cloud provider, make sure that Amazon AWS is selected.
    1. For the region that you want the subscription to use, select ap-south-1.
    2. In the Redis Cloud service levels, select the Redis Cloud Essentials 30MB/1 Database level.
    3. Enter a name for the subscription.
  3. Click Create.

The subscription shows a “Pending” status and takes a few minutes to provision. You receive an email when your subscription is ready to use.

Step 2: Create a Database with a Module Enabled

After you create a subscription, you can create a database:

  1. Enter a name for the database.

  2. Enable the modules and select the module you want to use.

  3. Click Activate.

    new-cloud-database-modules

The database is in “Pending” status. When the database is created, you can see the database settings, including:

  • Endpoint - The address you use to connect to the database
  • Redis Password - The password you must use in your application connections to authenticate with the database

Step 3: Connect to your database

Now you can connect to the database with telnet, redis-cli, an application or RedisInsight.
